Kreitler Kompact Rollers 3”
Ride: Staying upright on these requires a little more concentration and skill than the Galaxia, but the grooved drums slow any wild swings. They send more vibration up to the rider than the Tacx.
Resistance: These midsize drums are capable of creating enough resistance for threshold workouts, but they turn a little too easily for all-out anaerobic sessions.
Usability: Couldn’t be more straightforward. The front half folds over the rear when out of use; just open it up when you’re ready to train. Solid and simple construction helped this set earn its reputation as a workhorse capable of lasting for the long haul.
